All 8 year old (2nd grade) players for the upcoming season have the option of trying out for the 8 year old Majors team. This team will be made up of 8 year olds from South Jeffco and is not affiliated with the South Jeffco Minors program. This team is put together to give the top players a chance to play in a more competitive league. The team will play league through AYL.
Tryouts for the 8 Majors team will be held in October, time and location TBD. The players will go through a number of drills to determine their throwing, hitting, catching, pitching, fielding and running ability. Each players skills will be evaluated by a group made up of coaches who do not have affiliation with any of the players in the tryout. The top players will be chosen for the team and then the coach will be picked. Those players not making the 8 majors team will return to the South Jeffco minors program.

What are my responsibilities as a parent?
You as a parent should support your child and the team. Always be positive around the players and team. If you have concerns address them with the coach first at the appropriate time. If you still have concerns contact your Area Director. If your area director cannot solve your problem then contact the Baseball Director. Both directors can be contacted through the South Jeffco office. (303-979- 9239) You should also assist in your player's skills development. You can do this by enrolling him in clinics, getting professional training and working with them on the skills they are learning at practice.
